Minister Poojary said that the Development of Fishing Port at Hejamadi Kodi has been lying pending for the last 30 years which has been now approved. The development of Hejamadi port will reduce the pressure on Mangalore and Malpe ports as well. If everything goes as per the plan and the port is developed, then it can handle 26,224 metric tonnes of fish annually with 156 mechanised boats, 467 motor traditional boats and 500 traditional boats, he explained.
The 32 acres of government land, required for the project, has been transferred to Port department by the Revenue department. About 12 acres of private land needs to be acquired for the port work.
